The tech IPO market shows no signs of slowing down in 2014.
In fact, going into the next year there are 590 U.S. tech companies in the IPO pipeline that are either backed by venture capital or private equity and are valued at $100 million or more, according to new data published Thursday by CB Insights, a research firm that collects venture capital and angel investment data.
At this time last year, there were 472 companies in the pipeline.
"2013 was a pretty good year in general for IPOs. It was a little better in health care than tech. But for tech 2014 will be a better year, assuming that the market doesn't suffer some crazy downturn or sentiment doesn't get very negative," said Anand Sanwal, founder and CEO of CB Insights. "2014 will be a good year for IPO and exit more general."
Here's a glimpse of what kind of tech companies are in the pipeline for next year.
